Use Of Dogs In Experiments At Edgewood Arsenal, Maryland
PSAD-76-80: Published: Mar 12, 1976. Publicly Released: Mar 12, 1976.
- Full Report:
Congress requested us to investigate the Army's compliance with section 703 of Public Law 93-365 dated August 5, 1974, which prohibited the use of dogs for research and development of chemical and biological weapons. Specifically, Congress asked us to investigate all experiments which have taken place since the passage of the law, inspect experiments currently underway, and study future experiments to determine whether the provisions of section 703 are being adhered to.
In our opinion, the Army complied with the legal restrictions imposed on it for fiscal year 1975, and if the Army's current research continues as planned, we believe that compliance with these restrictions will continue.
